Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Two lines that would have saved Obama (Non-Dead)

Someone explain to me how the Obama team failed to include these two lines below somewhere in a 90-minute debate. It wasn't all Jim Lehrer's fault.

All Obama had to do last night was say these two things and he would have been declared the winner. His debate prep team needs to be completely overhauled. What a disaster.

"Governor Romney, in an unguarded moment, you told a group of wealthy donors that it was your job -- YOUR JOB -- not to worry about 47% of the American people -- including those most in need, like veterans, seniors and children. Do you stand behind those words? And how does that perception of the presidency -- the idea that your job is to only do the bidding of your wealthy buddies and not worry about the rest -- how does that influence your stance on issues like Social Security, Medicare, and the need to provide health insurance coverage for all?"

"But Governor Romney, YOU said that YOUR plan for the uninsured was that they should just go to the emergency room. Is that a plan that you still support?"

And boom, Obama wins. It's mind-boggling. It was like watching a fighter take a dive. I really can't fathom it.

End of rant.

Heh, heh, heh. I read your title "Two Lines That Would Have Saved Obama" as "Two Lines Would Have Saved Obama" and thought, "Yeah, he seeemed pretty lackluster. I'll bet two lines would have done the trick."

Enjoy,
